Put a little Spring into your Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Inspirations

Hi today I am going to put a little  Spring into my  Heartfelt Creation. We are trying to have a little snow storm where I live in Michigan, just 6 inches.  The weather was Spring like yesterday and snow today. This book with  Stargazer Lilies and  a beautiful butterfly makes me think of Spring.

I used  the newly released  Butterfly Medley PreCut Stamp  along with the Decorative Butterfly Die from the  Sunny Day Collection along with a few other of my favorite Heartfelt Creations PreCut  Stamps and Coordinating Dies.

 This book is about an 1 1/2" deep so you can hide something sweet in it, I chose to put a sentiment. The inside cover I used the  Decorative Butterfly Die to make a pocket. I cut a nice  square from the  Sunny Day Paper Collection and customized the lilies . This is a nice place to write something or stick a picture.

 Make sure to stop my the Heartfelt Creations  Blog to see what the designers have  showcased for you.
 I mentioned this in my last post and I will mention it again, if you truly love Heartfelt Creations Products and are passionate about card making, scrapbooking and or altered arts there is a  design team call open.  For  all the details click here. This is an opportunity that you should not miss (de and Eleanor I am talking to you).

Heartfelt Creations Valentine

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4

Today I have a Heartfelt Creations Valentine.  I chose the  Large Elegant Word Background PreCut Set because of what it says.  Then I just looked at  my beautiful Heartfelt Creations precut stamps, coordinating dies and paper collections and it all came together.

I used the same Vintage Floret paper for the leaves and the background just sponge ink on the leaves.

Look closely at the  Decorative Lace Background yes it is paper that I spritzed with water, Perfect Pearls and Glimmer Mist.
